    Why am I not being asked for a password?


    uSW10Pro V1803

    In the dialog "User Accounts" (via netplwiz.exe), the cbox "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer." is checked. The box has a single admin user, me.

    If I logout (even shutdown) and later attempt access, I am not required to use a password to login. All I have to do is click my login button beneath my user icon.

    My understanding is the selected checkbox should require it. Why can I login without a password?

    Thank you. (Low hours pilot)

    :)

    Why am I not being asked for a password?

    Bitlocker not asking for password set up

    I have the same problem as David with bitlocker set-up not asking me for a password. Following the instructions in the article suggested by Jennifer does not help as it assumes that I will be prompted to enter a password - the set up skips that step going
    straight to the options for saving the recovery key. Once (supposedly) encrypted, I can restart my computer without having to enter anything apart from my microsoft password so I do not have any additional security at all.
